Zentangle Basics …

This weekend, I got to share my passion for Zentangle with Debbie and her book club.  Six of us met at my space in Pacific Beach for an “Introduction to Zentangle”.  It was a grey and cool summer day in San Diego so a…

“Found and Tangled Words” …

Although today’s class was small, we had a nice quiet afternoon creating “Found & Tangled Words”.  In fact, after today’s class, I think the only way to have this class is in a nice, quiet environment …. it’s hard to look at those words…

“Linen Panels” and “DingbatZ”!

Last week, Judy and I got together for our monthly tangling session.  Julie usually joins in as well, but had other obligations this month.  Having just returned from Tangle U in Portland, Oregon, with fresh, new ideas, I decided we would give the tangled…

“Tangled Trivets” ….

Last Sunday at Icarus Creative Arts, five of us came together to tangle us some trivets ….. 7″ cork trivets covered with a Kraft-tex “zendala style” tile.  I decided to draw out the string ahead of time to save on class time as sometimes…

“Tangle U 2018” …

I’ve just returned from Portland, Oregon and attending “Tangle U 2018”.  Tangle U is a gathering of CZT’s from far and wide, coming together to learn new techniques and ideas for our Zentangle practices.  It was attended by about 125 people this year and…

“African Mudcloths” ….

Sunday afternoon was spent at Icarus Creative Arts Studio tangling Zentangle-Inspired “African Mudcloths”. This technique involved pre-prepped paper, black, brown and white inks.  Six ladies and “Fama” (another Canine Companion in Training) joined in. I prepared the paper before class as it takes a…

“Just Patterns” ….

Six ladies, and one dog, joined me for an afternoon session at Icarus Creative Arts Studio this past weekend.  They learned eight new patterns to add to their tangle libraries.  I think sometimes we get stuck using the same patterns over and over and are…

“Scallop Boxes” …

“Scallop Boxes” were the order of the day this weekend at Icarus Creative Arts.  Five ladies and one grandson came to create one of these magical little boxes.  The template is from Mirkwood Designs.  This site features lots of different paper folding ideas, along…

Intro to Zentangle …

Ten ladies took “Football Sunday” off and treated themselves to learning the Zentangle Art Method.  It’s been a while since I’ve held an Intro Class at Icarus, so it was fun to get back to the basics.  It was great to meet new faces…

“White Ink on Black Paper” …..

I had a very pleasant, peaceful and relaxing afternoon class at Icarus this past weekend with Judy and Sharon.  We used the new Sakura Gelly Roll white pens with black paper to create our own Zendalas.  We each started with the pattern Cyme (using…
